Yoga

The Practice of Yoga positively influences how we connect with ourselves, other people, our lives and to the greater world.

Practicing yoga creates a unified flow of energy to and through the whole body.

The body, mind and heart align to open. Everyday tensions melt away. Yoga is a wonderful way to recharge. 

Yoga combines physical postures, breathing practices, deep relaxation and meditation.

Yoga postures (asana) are a holistic body practice - muscles stretch strengthen and tone, internal organs are gently massaged, overall posture improves, blood flow increases the circulation of oxygen to the body and the brain. Yoga assists with strengthening the digestive and immune systems while the nervous system becomes calmer, generating relaxation and better quality sleep. 

Breathing practices focus the mind, settle the body, balance emotions and connect you with the 'present moment'.

Deep Relaxation recharges every aspect of our being. 

Meditation focuses the mind and invites our authentic self to shine.
